'SURVIVORMAN' STAR TO KEYNOTE SONY CREATIVE SOFTWARE EVENT
The "Full HD - Over the Top" user group event will be held in
partnership with VASST, and will be sponsored by AMD, Microsoft and
Sony Creative Software. Sony will also provide details on its 64-bit
Vegas Pro HD video, audio and DVD production software, scheduled to
ship later this year.
"For the past eight years, our NAB user group event consistently
demonstrates just how large the Vegas Pro community is growing year
over year," says Dave Chaimson, VP of global marketing for Sony
Creative Software. "NAB 2008 will continue that momentum as we're
thrilled to add Les Stroud to the roster this year for our annual
gathering. We're very eager to learn more about his valuable
experiences in producing Survivorman and how he and his team approach
their production challenges."
Additional confirmed speakers for the event include Hollywood producer,
writer, director and actor Dean Devlin (Stargate, Independence Day,
Godzilla, The Patriot); aerial photographer Norman Kent; and VASST
managing producer and Vegas Pro expert Douglas Spotted Eagle. AMD's
Charlie Boswell, director of digital media and entertainment, will also
speak about his latest projects, along with Sony Creative Software VP
of technology Dave Hill.
